The Cold War used to be portrayed as a global struggle between the United States
and the Soviet Union. Even if this image has been challenged many times, the
main images that come to mind when speaking of the Cold War, are often linked
to superpower rivalry between the Soviet Union and the United States, the threat
of a military conflict, and nuclear armament. These images have proved tenacious regardless of scholarship underlining cooperation across apparent ideological division and cross-border interaction instead of hostility. One of the key
weaknesses is that many areas still lack empirical research that would fill in
the gaps and provide material to allow us to re-evaluate the extent and impact
of the Cold War. This volume is intended to serve these needs.
